This is the W4 project we've been working on for the last 2+ years. So far we've spent about 20 hours on it!!:rolleyes: I hope to get it ready to paint in the spring, it just needs the fender braces straightened up, and some patching at the bottom of the fenders, and a lot of sand-blasting, body work, and cleaning!!

Cornfused, my grandfather's first tractor was a W4 so we're going the extra mile on this one. We're going to take our time and do it right!!

Argee, we remove all the tin to sand blast, and just use a wire brush in a drill for the cast. I don't like the idea of getting sand into the engine!!

jbetts, welcome aboard, glad you made it!! Look around and enjoy!!
The tractor runs perfect and I've already rewired it, it's just body work now!! Still, I find the body work takes the longest any way!:argh:

Thank you for the kind words! A W-9 is a sharp looking machine, very impressive and BIG. The first thing you notice is the size of the grill.

Jody, not ready yet!!:rolleyes: Life kinda got in the way, I'll be taking the tin off this fall, having it sandblasted, and I'll take it into my basement this winter to do the body work. Hopefully it will be ready for next May!:rolleyes:

And my question is : Will you still be around next May after Martha has a little chat with you about this?????

I once put a Mercury 440 T/T that I survived a 40 foot flight on into my living room. Wife #! was suitable impressed :smoking: :rolleyes: Oh, notice I said #1!
